that. i would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem. personally, you look at that as a salute to the people who have payoff -- paved the way for us. but at the same time, this is a free country and freedom of speech is something we believe in and freedom of expression. that's an individual's choice. that's a fine line there. but i would personally be disappointed. but i think it would enforce that rule. >> i'll be quick with my take. kaepernick used the wrong platform to protest his views on the people of color. he disrespected, simply disrespected, the flag. i asked this of kaepernick. why don't you get out of your 49ers jersey and go out and really do something meaningful for something you feel so deeply about? we're back in a minute.
